    So after hitting the forums up here looking for C2 posts I noticed a thread over attaching the pi camera to the C2. Having read there is a pi in the C2 and having used octo print in the past on a prusa i3 I decided to pull the old xbox cam out and slap it into the USB port in the back of the C2. Sure enough I was able to connect to the octo print web interface and start the video streaming!

    Also after pulling the API key from the octo page and putting it into the cura software for the robo c2 I can now actually watch what is going on through cura.

    Thought I would post my ramblings for others interested in watching the printer and not wanting to really physically modify it. Now to just find a better place to mount the camera. Right now its sitting on a nema inside the case but thats really way to close to the build platform to get a good view.
